Meet the Team

David Novalinski


What David Novalinski enjoys the most about being a home inspector is helping home buyers and homeowners make educated decisions about their homes. He does this by performing an in-depth inspection of their home and taking the time to explain each of his findings with his client. Also during the course of the inspection, David points out maintenance items and gives tips on how to keep the home in good shape. After the inspection is done and the report is completed, whether it is a new purchase, a maintenance inspection, or a warranty inspection, the homeowner has a clear idea of what needs to be done. Some of his clients have said ““I would happily and whole-heartedly recommend About Your Home Inspection, Inc. to ANY family or friends. Thank you!””

David has been interested in home repairs and maintenance since he was a kid. He learned many of his skills from his father as they remodeled his childhood home together. Sometimes the lesson of the day was ways not to do things, but learning was the key. Those projects are what planted the seed. After high school, David joined the US Marine Corps and spent his four-year enlistment repairing helicopters. When he left the Marines, David took a position as a mechanic at TWA to repair passenger jets. While a mechanic for the airline, David married his high school sweetheart, Julie, bought their first home together, and started a family. The career proved to be short-lived, but the marriage and family are going strong.

Since that time, David has held positions in several different career fields including Die Maker, Mold Maker, and Building Maintenance. While each of these fields is different, the attention to detail and mechanical skills used in those jobs have helped to make him a better Home Inspector. With all those career changes, one thing has remained constant, David has continued to enjoy home maintenance and repair.

David took the required courses to become a Home Inspector at the Inspection Training Associates and passed with flying colors. I guess all those things ‘Dad’ showed him really panned out. David then took the test administered by the IDFPR (Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation) to become a certified Home Inspector in Illinois.

David started About Your Home Inspection, Inc. in May, 2006. Owning and operating his company is a dream come true. His goal is to give home buyers and homeowners ‘Peace of Mind’ by giving them valuable information they can use to make educated decisions when purchasing and maintaining their homes.

About Your Home Inspection joined the Huntley Area Chamber of Commerce and in 2007. Joining both has proven to be advantageous. Since joining the Chamber, David has been elected to the Board of Directors and was voted onto the Executive Board as Secretary, Chairman and Past Chairman.

When David isn’t working on the business he enjoys spending time with his family, working in the yard, riding his motorcycle and volunteering at the Association of Horizon Summer Camp.

Jake Rogers

Home Inspector

Jake was raised in Carpentersville, IL and grew up around several family members in the building trades. Jake developed an appreciation for homes from the tradesmen in his family, working with a moving company or just driving through the neighborhood delivering Chinese food (many of which he has now inspected). After high school, Jake attended the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. After college, it became clear that a typical desk job was not going to make him happy. After spending 3 years in the world of trade shows it was time for a change. Home Inspection seemed like a solid fit considering his background and experience. Jake has proven to be a great addition to the AYHI team and is hoping to help us expand to new territories for our clients.

In his time off Jake likes to spend time with his family and friends. Sometimes it’s at the lake, on the golf course, in the garage, or snowmobiling up north.
